Do You Need to Let Breast Milk Right Out of the Refrigerator Get to Room Temperature Before Feeding?

Some babies will accept refrigerated breast milk only if it has been warmed to room temperature while others may not care if it is hot or cold, says Dana L. Ehman, a West Chester, PA-based lactation consultant. “If you feed the baby cold milk and she refuses, then you’ll know to heat the milk,” says Ehman. Breast milk thaws pretty quickly when placed under running hot water, she says.
